A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, a certain firm was not interested in hiring me since they didn't like my branch Information Science & Engg. Somehow I managed to get past that issue in life. A little later, I had issues trying to get an internship in my final year and never got it for various reasons. The horror was unbelieavle, all those "useless" people seem to get it and me not making it? Since the beginning, I believed in "your loss for missing me out". In the end, I landed up in a respectable place, more respectable than all the things I missed and there seemed to be justice in this world.

Fast forward to today, and here's what I realize: I haven't done anything as yet that would make anyone say "OMG, we missed an opportunity to have this guy with us". Thus far, I have failed my ego and I don't see anything that is going to fix this.

VB says:
I have had to think like this before ... you don't have any definite milestone to show for the last 2 years that you put in ... but don't worry ... when you are ready for the next step, then things will come easier to you, and *then* it will hit you that this new ease and confidence is because of these 2 "uneventful" years.

It somehow aligns with sports. All those years of doing nothing but fetching the ball and watching others . Then suddenly, when it's your turn to bat, it all flows, real easy!

Before you ask, she's too lazy to login to her own account.
MS Office's speech-to-text takes 70 mb.
According to Surabhi, it takes 70kgs (moi).

What's to say they won't say that in the future? It's never too late, right? :)

No one regrets not hiring a programmer, they have become a commodity, good ones are always available for cash. 7$ an hour or so I hear for freelance ones .

Get an MBA, get to wall street then takeover the company, that way you can make them pay.

My friend "Skinny" would say
"In college they all laughed at me, now I sign their paychecks".
